The organization is looking for servicemen and women who were honorably discharged and have not yet received their state’s service medal to participate in the ceremony. Veterans will need a copy of their honorable discharge papers and must fill out a short form.
Veterans who wish to receive a medal but do not want to participate in the ceremony can submit their paperwork, as well.
The museum at Old City Hall will be hosting a Korean War exhibit and is asking Korean War veterans or their families to loan photographs, artifacts and any other relevant items.
